Excitement

Posted by on Mar 25, 2011 in General Chaos | 4 comments

I got accepted to the MFA Writing program that I applied for. I’m so excited! I was starting to get a bit worried because I hadn’t heard a word in almost two months. Then today I got mail and it was the dreaded thin letter. I guess you can’t really believe the rumors when it comes to things like that. I’ve thought it over tonight, and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to do it. One of the things that I liked best about the program is they concentrate a couple of classes on marketing and how to get your writing out there.

I hope to get a bunch of writing done this weekend, we’ll see what happens.

In totally unrelated news, I found this book Remix on my kindle that I couldn’t remember buying. I thought that was pretty strange. I have been spending a lot of time on kindleboards lately, and bought a few indie author titles I found there. I’m guessing that’s where it came from. I decided to give it a click, and now I’m roped in. It’s really been a great experience so far, since I had no idea what the book was about to begin with. It really is a mystery for me. Now I’m almost afraid to go look it up and see what the blurb says because I’m having such a nice time discovering it for myself. I may have to start reading this way more often.  🙂

  1. Congratulations!! How exciting. When will you start?

    • August is when classes for the fall semester begin. It seems like such a long way off right now. I’m trying to decide if I want to go full time (3 courses a semester) or part time (2 courses a semester).

  2. I’ll add my congrats. Niiice.

    I think…:)
    I was going to ask what the MFA writing program is but I have some idea now.

    • Master of Fine Arts in Writing. One of the things I really love about this particular program is that the Master’s Project is the completion of a novel. So in the process of learning about writing and publishing, you actually complete a real work and get feedback along the way.
